Where Did Everyone Go


But nothing lasts forever
And the deepest well runs dry
Just cause i stopped rolling sevens
Doesn't mean i have to cry

Where Did Everyone Go

Way It Should Be


          You're alone. But you don't mind that. You're a loner. That's the way it should be. You've always been alone. By now it's your trademark. You like it that way.

They Haven't Moved

 

        You make coffee and smoke a few cigarettes ; and the hands of the clock have gone crazy on you. They haven't moved hardly, they've hardly budged out of the place you last saw them, but they've measured off a half ? two-thirds ? of your life.

Always Behind Us

         Somebody lets us loose like a toad out of a matchbox and we jump and jump and jump and the guy always behind us, and when he gets tired he stomps us to death and our guts squirt out on each side of the boot of All Merciful Providence. The son-of-a-bitch !
